USJC Diversity Policy

Making every personality a shining value

  1. We respect the differences of our employees as individuality and open up new possibilities.

    People have different perspectives, beliefs, and ways of thinking because they are different from others. When they know and appreciate differences and unite toward a common goal, new possibilities will sprout. That is why USJC will respect individuality.

  2. We support the diverse careers envisioned by each employee.

    We have employees of new graduates, mid-career, childcare leave, and rehired after retirement. They might say “I want to challenge something new" or "I want to master my current job.” Since each employee's situation and aspirations are unique, we will flexibly support their individual career plans.

  3. We will foster a culture in which all employees can shine brightly and their desire to shine.

    We hope employees to shine themselves, not USJC makes employees shine. We are committed to creating an environment in which they can do so.

  4. We aim to be a company where everyone involved shines.

    We will build an environment where not only all employees, but also everyone involved with USJC, from business partners and stakeholders to local residents, can shine.

Initiatives to Support the Development of
the Next Generation and Promote Empowering Women

USJC is committed to provide a comfortable work environment in which all employees can balance work and family life, while exercising their individuality and abilities to the fullest. We work in accordance with the aims of the "Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Developing Next-Generation" and the "Act on the Promotion of Active Roles for Women in Work”.

We will continue to fulfill our social responsibility by promoting "work-life balance," which is to help employees balance work and family life, and to promote women's activities in their work, by formulating the following action plans so that each employee can work in good mental and physical health while utilizing their own strengths.
